Watch The Great American Read on PBS 6

The Great American Read is an eight-part series that explores and celebrates the power of reading, told through the lens of America’s 100 best-loved novels (as chosen in a national survey). It investigates how and why writers create their fictional worlds, how we as readers are affected by these stories, and what these 100 different books have to say about our diverse nation and our shared human experience.

This LearningMedia collection highlights books from The Great American Read that find their ways into classrooms and onto summer reading lists. It includes additional resources across PBS partners that contextualize the authors and the impact these books have had on specific readers and throughout history.

The Great American Read premieres May 22 on PBS 6. Dive into the educational resource collection to use in your classroom!
